Zinn’s argument was not against selection, simplification, and emphasis, but his argument was against the mapmakers distortion. Zinn says that it is a technical necessity for a common purpose shared by all who need maps. 5. What is Zinn’s basic criticism of historian Samuel Eliot Morison’s book, Christopher Columbus, Mariner? A: Zinn feels that Morrison mentions the truth quickly and goes on to things more important to him.
Furthermore, historians take history and document it with their own values and opinions in mind. Whenever history is documented, there will always be emphasis on specific points over others. This also confirms the fact that reported history will never be exactly what happened. As historians put emphasis on different parts of historic events, they direct peoples’ opinions and the event will not be told as it
Benn knowingly enters a genre that is full of established works by established and accredited authors. Although rather than following into the same pattern of information delivery as most of the works on the subject Dr. Benn aims to inform and more importantly enlighten the reader to not only the facts of the conflict but also seeks to give us insight into the thoughts and actions of the participants themselves. Typical historical analyses of the events are interspersed with actual letters, newspaper articles, or writings from the
'The Handmaids Tale' is a first person narrative. The narrator is active in the story therefore can be considered as defective as the events are conveyed from a predisposed view point. Atwood reveals Offreds 'state of mind' through both the structure of the narrative and the opinions explored by our narrator. Offreds narrative style can be interpreted to highlight a number of viewpoints about Gilead. For instance the fragmented element of the narrative can both reflect Offreds 'state of mind' and contribute to the suggestions about Gilead as a nation/ society.
We soon realized the first thing we needed to do in order to grasp and appropriately apply the concept of postmodernism, was to understand what it is not: modernism. Modernism refers to a conceptual movement within capitalist cultures after the first world war, and is often represented through narratives such as film or literature as a yearning for the past. Modernism, like postmodernism, is largely characterized through a high value on aesthetic, essentially for aesthetic sake. Both are commentaries on luxury and thus should be noted that both are items of a technologically advanced capitalist society. Modernism confronts this idea, postmodernism confronts the aftermath of this idea.
Logos is used throughout the book and is mainly found in Postman’s quotes and examples. He is reasoning that his claims are true by backing them with other sources that agree with him, and more information about what he says. Ethos is also being used, but not very strongly, because Postman wants to give facts as the base of his argument. Pathos is essentially non-existent
We certainly cannot observe a moment from whatever angles I want but the only angle the painter or the photographer chose. The kind of limit imposed by frames is laid down by the constructers (i.e. the authors). Therefore, we can see authorial influence in texts by considering the use of frames. Not only can a frame has authorial influence, it can also have the author himself present in the frame, notwithstanding the literal author or a person he wants as to assume that is the author.
Janika Hirvi Evaluate the role of reason as a way of knowing Sometimes I am surrounded by a lot of questionable things, whether there is someone controlling us, are we real, how do we know things? For these questions there are no right or wrong answers, but can we know, when our knowledge is heading into the right direction? In the world there are a lot of things were you can doubt, but still you have to make your own decisions what no one else can do for you, other people can just persuade you. We can assume many things, what are not explainable with reason, but it can lead us to a false conclusion. When conclusions are made, they are made usually through reasoning.
Next, I will explain Lewis’s reply about why Knowledge Argument can’t refute physicalism. Finally, I will express my own opinion and show my reasons. Frank Jackson puts knowledge Argument forward. Although he thinks that physical knowledge provides us with some information relate to the world, and help people to understand the world in an objective way. However, in the process of experience, human cannot feel the “feeling” using the concepts of that “feeling”, which is named Qualia.
But as we grow our thinking process grows stronger, giving us the capability to now analyze and format those ideas into things such as essays. But just because we do not format our ideas every moment of every day doesn’t mean we still aren’t thinking. Frye believes that people, especially students, don’t know how to “think” because we don’t think in an orderly, strict, by the book fashion. But in reality our way of thinking is the best way, not forced or by the book. But thinking that is elusive, personal and unforceful, a way of thinking that is
